AGENT ORANGE – AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2011
The original Southern California punk/surf Power Trio, Agent Orange have been around since… forever. Never bought in, never sold out. Still flying under the radar after all these years,with a loyal following that’s always one step ahead.
Named after the chemical defoliant used by the USA in the Vietnam War, Agent Orange were one of a number of bands formed in the highly active “So-Cal” hardcore scene of Fullerton, Orange County, comprised Mike Palm (vocals, guitar), Steve “Soto” Rodgers (bass) and Scott Miller (drums). However, Rodgers left early in their development to form another local punk attraction, the Adolescents. His replacement was James Levesque who has since been replaced by Brent Liles (ex-Social Distortion)
Agent Orange remained largely quiet during the early part of the 90s save for a live album. Palm returned in 1996 with two new members and a studio album, Virtually Indestructible.
